Before going out into the world, we usually get our first lessons in social graces, etiquette, and manners from those closest to us: parents, grandparents, and other family members. Home is hopefully a place of comfort and safety for most young people, but it is also a place where they might stand to refine their interpersonal etiquette with household members. This book explores different types of etiquette teens can employ to keep relationships with siblings, parents, and others healthy and respectful. Readers will get introductory or refresher insights into various home scenarios, including family meals, personal space, internet privacy, and more.
With much of their time absorbed with school and with school-related scenarios and friendships, young people share universal experiences regarding etiquette in the school environment. From the library, to school events, to the classroom, this book presents a systematic exploration of proper behaviors and rituals most students will be faced with. Additionally, content on how to properly interact on social media as an extension of the school environment adds another dimension that makes this work a useful resource for youth finding their way as friends and members of their school communities.
